in the housing markets and for hundreds of thousands of charities in this country. again as i say, which ron didn't respond to, this party that has paraded around, the party that wants to rein in government spending, they are unable to identify any changes in medicare or entitlement spending which shows the tea party at its core was a phoney, phoney movement. >> joy, it's interesting to hear ron referring to august 2011 because a number of refers appear to have forgotten something happened in november 2012 called a presidential election. >> right. it was an election in which president obama, unprecedented for a democrat, actually ran on a platform of raising taxes. he said, i'm going to raise taxes on the top 2% and he was re-elected resoundingly with it. to what ron said, if it's only $14 trillion, what's the big deal, go ahead and let the rich pay it? that's number one. number two, the other thing that's been exposed and what's true, what's always been true about conservativism is that the core principle is the rich don't pay too much, they pay too little. when they say things like broaden the
this for a bill that can't and shouldn't become law. joining us now is ron meier, spokesperson for american majority action and jared bernstein a senior fellow and an msnbc contributor. welcome to you both. jared, this plan b, it's not only an affront to what the president has been trying to do in terms of a balanced approach. it's also a colossal waste of time, isn't it? >> absolutely. i mean, i have been writing about this in terms of theatrics at a time when really nobody ought to be going to the theater. the fiscal cliff is way too close for this type of game playing and i just noted today that the gdp report for the third quarter got a little bit of a bump. it was marked up to 3.1%. we're actually making some progress on this economic recovery, but if we go over and stay over the cliff because of all this screwing around, forget about it. you're going to have that recovery go south very quickly. john boehner on monday looked like a guy who is willing to make a balanced compromise or at least consider one in the interest of the country. john boehner on wednesday looks like a guy who is
? ♪ ♪ na na na na na na na na ♪ and everybody go uh! >>> welcome back to "starting point." today's team ron brownstein, will cane and roland martin, we're keeping you an available spot for him. >> empty chair. >> roland has been dieting. you can't even see him. if you've ever been confused by facebook's privacy settings, you are not alone. even mark zuckerberg's sister might be after a private family photo she posted on facebook went public. she is the former marketing director of facebook and she posted this photo of her family. >> that's her. >> there we go. it includes facebook ceo mark zuckerberg, someone who wasn't supposed to see it saw it because she was friends with someone else who was tagged in it and it was retweeted in the aftermath. an angry response that included this line, it's not about privacy settings, it's about human decency. >> talk about six degrees of separation. you had the chain of events there. >> someone who saw someone whose friend saw it who posted it? welcome to the internet. >> the increasing reality is you're assuming that anything that can be seen will be se
bernstein, and ron insana. you heard the speaker and his comments moments ago. this is good for the president, the jobs report, no doubt. he can argue that, my policies have been working, better tax hikes for the upper 2%, more amenable because the economy is coming along. how do democrats leverage this in the key cliff negotiations going on? >> i think the key point is that there is some momentum in the jobs report. the labor market diminished a little bit in december. that's why the unemployment rate fell down, not because of extra jobs. but all told, especially expecting sandy's damage, it was a pretty good report and it shows that there's some und underlying momentum. the argument from the president or from anyone who cares are this economic recovery, it would be a crazy time to throw a monkey wrench at an ongoing recovery that has a little bit of momentum. >> ron, to you on this. talking about sandy, there seems to be a lack of sandy effect as some had thought initially. we see a pullback, a little less than half of a percent. we have positive indications there that say
victims of the newtown, connecticut shooting. nbc's ron mott is live in newtown this morning on a somber and sad day for connecticut and the nation. ron? >> hey there, chris. good morning. obviously a very somber day here as you mentioned in connecticut. across this country as the 26 people who lost their lives last friday were being remembered with these tolling of the bells, not just here at connecticut but around the country as well and for a lot of people time simply stopped last friday and hasn't moved in a lot of ways. it is still 9:30, december 14th. for so many family is here and so many friends of those families that are sharing such anguish and such a sense of loss and senselessness at the whole situation last week just up the road here with those 20 young children, those six adults who lost their lives in such a brutal way last week. now, some churches around the country have decided to add a 27th bell toll and a 28th bell toll in memory of the family of the lanza family, nancy lanza, the mother of adam lanza, as well. but a lot of these folks, they know that time will eventua
primary, giuliani, ron paul and the others, if this guy didn't want to be president. he pushed ron paul's delegate out of congress to push him out of the nomination. he did everything he could to become president and he failed. >> richard, does no one in the romney family have any kind of ear for what honesty sounds like? >> well, i'm not sure if they know what humanity looks like. you know, they said the romney sons say they cannot think of a poe person who wants to be president less than their father. i suggest they meet more people, because there's a lot of people who don't want to be president, and here's the paradox that runs through the entire romney campaign, which is you had somebody desperate to be president and who was deathly uncomfortable to be a candidate for president. you can't message over it, it's not about the 370,000 votes they lament were not theirs and would have won them the election. only 370,000 votes. if you're al gore and you lose an election by an ex krus ating close margin, then you have the right to lament the margin of defeat. but 370,000 votes is not a slo
conservative leaders in the house. here now to try to make this weak case is ron meyer. ron, first of all, i want to say that i commend john boehner for his valiant attempts to stop the fiscal cliff and to make a deal without giving up growth principles. but when you say conservatives don't support boehner, what is eric cantor, what is paul ryan? what is jeb henesling if he's not a conservative? what is tom price if he's not a conservative? what exactly are you smoking? the top conservatives in the house support boehner. >> well, i actually don't think that somebody like tom price would if he has his choice of who he could pick out of everyone. we should have the power of self-determination. we shouldn't get seniority decide, this person should be the next person -- >> look. he is running the house. he's the speaker of the house. you confuse that with running the conservative movement. >> well, then why don't you come out and say, we shouldn't raise taxes. boehner came out and said we should raise taxes. >> i think boehner is doing the best he can to prevent marginal tax rates from rising. i
connection? here's abc's ron clane orn. >> reporter: police say 24-year-old dawn nguyen supplied the guns used to ambush four firefighters on christmas eve, killing two of them. >> when nguyen bought the guns and said she was going to be the owner, she lied. >> reporter: authorities say she bought the guns for her neighbor, william spengler, back in 2010. that he even went to the gun store with her to pick them out. spengler, a convicted felon, could not legally purchase a firearm himself. she told police she bought the guns for her own protection and they had recently been stolen. what's not in dispute, spengler used those guns monday night, a 12-gauge shotgun and a bushmaster semiautomatic rifle while they were responding to a blaze he had set. >> firemen mike chiapperini was deceased at the scene. >> reporter: also killed, tomas kaczowka. spengler took his own life. tonight dawn nguyen is facing 10 years in prison for her alleged role in this tragedy. earlier this week, the children of webster, new york, lit candles to honor those firefighters who died. today's arrest shows how serious
with britain's other leading lady were famously warm. prime minister thatcher called the president "ron" he addressed her as "margaret." together, they were political soul mates. >> i think they had a quite congenial, personal connection to each other. although what these documents show is that margaret thatcher wasn't always so full of praise for reagan. >> reporter: britain was at war with argentina, trying to hold on to its islands in the south atlantic. >> the united states came down firmly on our side, and we're very grateful we have been such strong allies. >> reporter: but in private, there was tension. reagan urged her to negotiate, but she wanted victory. mrs. thatcher said she was sure that the president would act in the same way if alaska had been threatened. to get what she wanted, the iron lady used her softer side. >> dear ron, she writes. i think you are the only person who will understand the significance of what i'm trying to say. >> very personal. >> absolutely. >> reporter: mrs. thatcher's charm offensive did the trick and they remained friends long after they left power.
's ron mott is in the thick of it with the latest. >> reporter: all those protesters are starting to make their way away from the stateho measures passed the house. i just came back with an interview with the governor who expects to sign these two measures tomorrow, though it could happen later tonight. no signing ceremony because of the contention surrounding the issue. one of the things that a lot of workers on the ground talked about says it's an issue of fairness. it's unfair for non-union members to benefit from generations of hard work, all the advancements for organized labor and blue collar workers through the generations. the governor says they believe this makes michigan more competitive not just to attract businesses here but around the world to attract international companies to michigan and puts them back on a level playing field with other states that have passed similar legislation. if the governor signs this, as expected. michigan will become the 24th right to work state, joining a lot of other gop republican-controlled legislature. a partisan issue, republicans versus dem
.c. penney side, i do think j.c. penney has an interesting turnaround story here. the stores of ron johnson have been able to revamp and institute his new model of a collection of boutiques. those stores have seen the revenues double. only 10% of the stores have been revamped, but if they can continue to maintain cash flow long enough. >> i don't like what ron johnson is doing. since this guy's taken over this stock has done nothing but go down. it was about the product, not the concept. anyone could have sold ipads and ipad minis and iphones over the year, the complete opposite and failure at jv penny the want to avoid those shares. >> rich, of course, the stock has done poorly, but it's done much better since the ipo of groupon of the you've been much better served actually being in j.c. penney than being in groupon. i would also say this. i think there is a cushion you have in j.c. penney than not groupon and that's the real estate. arguably the real estate of jc penny is worth more than the market cap of the company. with the underlying protection i think you have a bit of a free call o
. our team ron brownstein, editorial director for "national journal" will cain a contributor for theblaze.com and co-anchor john berman sticks around with us. house speaker john boehner has a news conference this morning, going to happen in just about two hours at 10:00 a.m. eastern time there's no doubt a lot of the focus will be on exactly what it was that happened last night, house republicans abandoning speaker boehner forcing him to cancel the vote on plan b. now lots of folks are asking what happened in those negotiations and what are the implications of what happened in those negotiations? our senior congressional correspondent is dana bash, watching it unfold. did it feel like the train wreck it feels like this morning last night? >> it did. you can see it in slow motion all day yesterday. i watched republican leaders, twisting arms, cajoling fellow republicans on the house floor and in the evening it became panic. it became clear the speaker had a high number of his fellow republican members willing to defy him and it was clear he didn't have the votes. i'm told it w
are cnn contributor and democratic strategist maria cardona and republican strategist ron bonjin. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> ron, i'll start with you. reid and mcconnell, they really are the focus in the senate. in the house, it's speaker john boehner. i've got to ask you, is his job on the line if republicans balk at any deal that's reached? >> no, not at all. speaker boehner is extremely strong. his conferences support him and knows that he's been in a tough position trying to negotiate the fiscal deal with the president. he's been doing this for weeks, month, working on this deal. and you know, they gave it a shot. they tried their best. the house, you know, house republicans wouldn't go for it. and said, you know, it's up to the senate. and once -- if the senate passes something, the house now will consider it. so i -- i do think that the speaker is in a very strong position. and besides, this is a very difficult job. i don't see many republicans standing up and wanting to take speaker boehner on. not many other people could do the job like speaker bo

of hawaii as sitting in the white house with bo. ron is calling from elgin, illinois. hey, ron. >> caller: good morning, bill. >> bill: good morning. >> caller: just stating the obvious. we are going over the cliff, and that may or may not be the worst thing that will ever happen. >> bill: i don't think it's the worse. i don't think it's going to be that bad. and i think there will be an immediate course correction once we go over. >> caller: i agree. i think action will be spurred after that. i think the other thing that the republicans are telling mr. boehner is that maybe his days as speaker have been numbered, and maybe when they come back with a new congress maybe we will have a new speaker of the house. >> bill: you know i think that is -- i think you are right on about that. and i think john boehner knows it. what's scary, ron, is that we could end up with somebody worse than boehner believe it or not. boehner doesn't >> caller: that could happen. >> bill: boehner doesn't agree with his tea partyers on everything, but he can't control
likely to hit the target versus law enforcement and representative ron paul is against all of this. he's saying this is not the answer, this or wellion surveillance totalitarian way to go and total state control he says will be invited into the schools if you're armed teachers. >> ron paul says that. >> representative ron paul is against this. >> use it as a extension of government. >> yeah, he does, i understand the man's point, i'm just surprised to hear this. >> he's vehemently against this. >> not every teacher is so stable, too. i tell you something, i come from a long line of teachers in my family, a lot of stories about teachers. >> send your e-mails-- >> stop it right now, the e-mails are on the way. in a few minutes the latest read on pending home sales for november. and we ask a secondary question, will falling off the fiscal cliff kill this one bright spot in the economy which is housing why can't congress make a deal? it had months to compromise and there's nothiig out there. the dow is down 88. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm b. so now i can be in the
. then at 8:00 a.m. eastern, senator ron johnson and bob corker. president obama issued a warning on "meet the press." >> on midnight, december 31st, if congress doesn't act, then everybody's taxes go up. and for the average family, that could mean a loss of $2,000 in income. for the entire economy, that means consumers have a lot less money to make purchases, which means businesses are going to have a lot less customers, which means that they're less likely to hire and the whole economy could slow down at a time when the economy is starting to pick up. >> but after it was all said and done, leaders on the senate floor couldn't get anything done, at least not yet. >> there's no single issue that remains an impossible sticking point. the sticking point appears to be a willingness and interest or frankly the courage to close the deal. i want everyone to know, i'm willing to get this done, but i need a dance partner. >> this morning, we've been trying to come up with some counteroffice to my friend's proposal. we haven't been able to do that. i've had a number of conversations with the presid
this with wisconsin republican senator and budget committee member ron johnson. senator johnson, i just want to read off a couple to you. i just love this. $60 billion bill. $8 million for cars and furniture for the fbi. $150 million for salmon fishing, $57 million to clean up tsunami debris from 2011, $336 million for the amtrak program that's never been done. what is going on here? the people in new york who are still suffering need direct assistance. none of this is direct assistance. >> hello, larry. of course what's going on is business as usual here in washington. listen, i think there's bipartisan support to realize that this is emergency. we want to get money flowing to the people that need it. but let's get some information. let's not create a christmas tree here and load it up with all kinds of different ornaments. let's take a look at what the true need is, short term and then longer term. and let's do this in a measured fashion. so from my standpoint, i think it makes an awful lot of sense. we've got nine months left till fiscal year 2013. that's kind of the line of demarcation. we shoul
of privacy amendments, including one from democratic senator ron wyden of oregon. his amendment would have required the head of the country's spy agencies to tell congress when americans accidentally got spied on. right now, we have no way of knowing how often that happens. also, republican senator rand paul of kentucky, he wanted to force the government to get a warrant to read our e-mails and other electronic communications. for privacy advocates, these amends were the good news. the bad news, the democratic-controlled senate killed every single one of those amendments. killed them dead. they voted them all down. and today the once-controversial warrantless wiretapping bill was extended for another five years, and amazingly, almost nobody seems to have noticed. we used to fight about this tough. the whole reason fisa needs congressional reauthorization every few years is that we are supposed to reassess it, debate it, have a big conversation about it. but we were quiet this time. so let's have one here. joining us now, not to be quiet about it, is my friend julian sanchez, a research fel
's ron mott is in new york's times square where preparations are under way for tonight's big show. >> a good new year's eve to you, richard, here in times square. on 365 days of the year it is a pretty electric place with all of those lights. it will be especially so tonight. an estimated crowd of a million plus are expected to jam into times square tonight to watch the ball drop and usher in 2013. now securing all of those folks is a pretty serious business and that requires a lot of man power from the nypd. they won't give us specifics on the number of police that will be patrolling times square tonight but suffice it to say it is into the number of thousands. several thousands. not just here in times square but all around the city. nypd commissioner, police commissioner ray kelly, telling us they will have roof top patrols that will be mounted police on horseback, police on scooters. they will of course obviously be on the ground. there are 54 checkpoints for people to get through. this is a hearty bunch that will watch this ball drop tonight because once they get inside the pe
, executive director of american values institute, and ron bonjean a guy who knows how things get handled in the house of representatives. he was former communications director to house speaker hastert. the house, ron, is saying look we sent spending bills over to the senate and they have languished. so it is their turn. is that a workable strategy? i mean are americans going to say okay, the house has done its job? >> well, here, if we don't get a deal, even a small deal i think that americans will blame washington in general. you know the president tried to blame republicans in over the weekend, you know, on a sunday talk show and i don't think that's the way voters see it. i think they will say, you know what? democrats, republicans you're not getting anything done. we elected, we reelected president obama because he wanted him to go on a path forward but it's not happening. you, and i think if the markets crash, it will scare a lot of people and i think and taxes will go up. i think they will point at both sides. a big problem for both parties. jon: alexis, harry truman had the famous
. thanks. joining us for a closer look at the fiscal cliff negotiations, ron johnson, a member of the appropriations and budget committees in the senate. thank you for taking a break from a busy time to visit with us. >> thank you. >> i want to get a response from the comments to the president. he said that g.o.p. can't take yes for an answer. is there an offer that would have been acceptable to the house or the senate g.o.p.? >> not that i am aware. people throw the numbers around, like there is a deal, $1 revenue for $3 spending cuts, i have never seen those deals. senator harry reid should have made sure the senate passed a budget, sometime in the past 3 years and that would be reconciled with the house and you would have a framework, you know, a budget resolution that the committee -- the appropriations committee, the house ways & means committee, senate finance committee, they would have the instructions to work on the difficult problems npublic. have a public debate. we are down now to the 59th minute of 11th hour here and have you a couple of elected officials and unelec
cannot ignore the american people on tax hikes. ron hine on why he says there is still no reason to panic on the cliff. our very own lou dobbs is not buying it. adam: our very own nicole petallides is on the new york stock exchange. where do we stand right now. right now the dow jones industrials are down nearly 60 points. the nasdaq composite is down three quarters of 1%. not a great day here. there are concerns about the fiscal cliff. we just have the deadline timeclock up again. we know that we have very accommodative fed's. let's take a look at some european markets. finance ministers have been discussing things including giving them more power. these are some of the things that they are looking at closely. we had seen europe really pushing some new recent highs. that is something that pushed us along in the last couple days. lori: a showdown in washington. sparring over a dead deal. it does not look like either party is ready to budge. where are we now, rich we are still in the middle of a work in progress. that could be a little bit of an understatement. democrats say they want a co
, ron mott, thanks very much for the latest there. >>> a lot more ahead in the special "mission critical, right above d.c." we're back with former federal reserve chairman alan greenspan who will sit down with me for an interview only on this network. he's partly to blame for the looming fiscal cliff crisis and the white house's plan for another economic stimulus and why is roger at man optimistic that republicans and democrats can come together and reach a deal in avoiding going over the fiscal cliff. >> reporter: and why are billionaire investors warren buffett and george soros calling on congress to raise the wealth tax. we'll have that story. stay with us. even those held elsewhere, giving her the confidence to pursue all her goals. when you want a financial advisor who sees the whole picture, turn to us. wells fargo advisors. >> time is running out. >> right now the american people have to be scratching their heads when is the president going to get serious? >> washington remains at odds. >> that is a bad strategy for america. it's a bad strategy for your businesses, and it is not a
him ron, he addressed her as margaret. >> i think they had quite a congenial, personal connection to each other. but these documents show that margaret thatcher, not always so full of praise for reagan. >> britain was at war for argentina, trying to hold onto islands in south atlantic. >> the united states couple down firmly on our side over the f k falklands. >> but in private there were tension. she wanted victory. mrs. thatcher said she was sure that the president would act in the same way if alaska was threatened. >> she writes, i think you are the only person who would understand the significance of what i'm trying to say. >> very personal. >> absolutely. >> the charm offensive did the trick and they remained friends long after he left power. margaret thatcher, 87 years old, spent christmas in the hospital ill. in the coming years, we'll likely see many more files which will shed a light on a time when she and president reagan were working together to spring an end to the cold war. fascinating stuff, t.j. >> thank you so much. >>> getting close to the bottom of the hour now.
that the economic impact of such a work stoppage is disaster. joining me is nbc's ron mott. for folks not following the story, how did we get here? >> reporter: folks haven't because they're paying attention to the fiscal cliff. this was lurking in the shadows and today moved the ball down the field for 30 days and may be talking about a strike again in 30 days but the big issue here was this so-called container royalty that the shipping companies pay to the union members who actually the guys and men and women offloading the big ships and the containers with things like tvs and shoes and clothing, they get a royalty based on the weight of all of those containers and the shipping companies are looking to try to control costs and increase their profits and the biggest sticking point. in the agreement that they have announced today for the 30-day extension they're saying they reached agreement in principle on the royalties which was the biggest stumbling block here so i think it's probably safe to say in 30 days to button up all the little issues here, minor issues, secondary issues and move forward
constructive talks, i believe those are the quotes. i have with me, ron brown, cnn contributor. ron, it's not how it works in washington, the straight up-or-down vote. >> it hasn't for a long time. there are two separate things here. there's the filibuster in the senate. but the biggest obstacles is the hastert rule in the house. it has always been hard to see bill that a majority of house republicans would vote for that would be acceptable to president obama. so in many ways, i felt for really months, the only two choices were going over the cliff or abandoning that hastert rule and john boehner being willing to bring up a bill that could be passed by democratic votes, not passed by the majority of republicans. sounded a little more optimistic on the relative gauge we have than over the last couple of weeks. >> they're now running out of venues to discuss this. they discussed it at the white house. tried to get a deal between speaker boehner and president obama. now it's gone to the senate. harry reid and mitch mcconnell will try to work something out. after that, they have run out of
. ron paul was taking a powder to get out of the camera way in the house or whatever so these two guys are the two senators. >> stephanie: he's the senator from the green room. >> nobody wants to see mcconnell or boehner. they're the two that we'll take the spotlight because we look like we're in the process of doing something which for the record they're not! >> stephanie: dean in atlanta. you're on with hal. welcome, dean. >> caller: how are you? >> stephanie: good. go ahead. >> caller: i just want to preface my comment with the observation that i think -- i should practice law. i think justice scalia's pretty much a bully and -- has some issues of his own that need resolution. but i think you're missing the point and i haven't heard anybody really speak about it. either on your show or elsewhere i don't think he's saying that gay marriage is murder. what i think he would argue is that there is a -- that the government has the right to outlaw or make illegal behavior that it considers immoral. >> stephanie: r
